Deep flan tin

A round or square metal baking tin with fluted straight sides at least 3cm deep, flan tins are available in a range of sizes. They often have a removable base (loose-bottomed) to make it easier to release the cooked flan.

Flan tins are used for baking sweet and savoury dishes including tarts, quiches and flans.
